Pulp Fashion, exhibition

artist Isabelle de Borchgrave, from Pulp fashion Exhibition 2011

Just in case anyone is in San Francisco between now and June 5 I thought I would tell you about the Pulp Fashion exhibition at the Legion of Honor Fine Arts Museum.
Isabelle de Borchgrave is an amazing Belgian artist who constructs life size paper and paint replicas of costumes in Early European paintings as well as iconic modern costumes found in other museums around the world. Many of the costumes are displayed in front of the painting the inspiration is drawn from and are absolutely breathtaking. It’s hard to believe they are made from paper.
There are over a dozen beautiful photographs and a couple of short videos available on the Pulp Fashion website.
My kingdom for a plane fare!!
Don’t forget to stop by the gift store on your way out 🙂

You can also see the Magna Carta and an AD300 Roman mosaic floor in the same museum at the same time! Splendid!



  1. Actually I’m in San Jose at the moment. I could drop by on the way to the airport, paper clothes seem a little crazy but the mosaic does definately look interesting.
